Tensile Load Testing for Anchors

Many anchors these days, particularly those used in cracked or un-cracked concrete, have European Technical Assessments (ETA’S) attached to them, which assuming they are installed to the correct guidelines, negate the need for further testing.

However on those occasions when the concrete strength or substrate is unknown, such as in an existing building that’s undergoing refurbishment or the anchor itself doesn’t carry an ETA – an On-Site Pull Test may be requested.

On-Site Pull Tests.

Hobby Homes can offer tensile on-site load testing for any anchors we supply – covering a testing range from 0.5kN (50kgs) to 25kN (2500kgs)

Upon completion of the testing, you will be issued with an On-Site Pull Test – Report Sheet (OSPT-Report) via e-mail, along with copies of the relevant calibration certificates for the test meter used.
